My Approach to Helping

I love working with clients who are new moms freaking out about this little stranger they just popped out... Or that person who's grown up feeling like their body never matched their true gender on the inside... Or someone who had a really traumatic birth, but doesn't feel like they can talk about it because "someone else had it worse".

I love working with clients who are sassy, motivated, and are ready to dig into those mental health symptoms. If you want to work with someone who won't BS you, but will be gentle at the same time, I'm your girl.

My specialty is "Reproductive Mental Health", which encompasses perinatal mood & anxiety disorders, sexual concerns, and infertility. Many of my clients are pregnant, postpartum moms who are feeling overwhelmed by their mental health symptoms. I also work with those affected by infertility. I offer support, validation, and practical advice.

I work with a lot of clients with sexual concerns, including struggles related to "purity culture", low desire, or not feeling like their sexual identity fits into their marriage, society, religion (excluding sex offenders). I am kink, poly LGBTQIA-allied. My goal is for you to feel valued and accepted just the way you are. Meet with me and know your worth.

More Info About My Practice

I am located in Ramsey, MN. I am able to do in-person or teletherapy services. My space is quiet and private-- perfect for clients who are wanting to explore other gender identities, etc. but are worried about running into someone they know. This space is also great for people who are very worried about COVID, as it is easy to maintain CDC guidelines and not have a lot of foot traffic.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Lots of people have had prior therapy experiences that were negative. I like to talk about what was not helpful about that experience and what the client would prefer therapy to look like.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

I think it is critical to have the right vibe with your therapist. If you're not feeling the therapist's energy, then it's going to be hard to open up to them. Sometimes it takes a few therapists to find that right connection.
